Description The increasing amount of data encourages the creation of new methodologies for data processing, as well as the development of digital technologies. Both are progressively yielding new potentials and possibilities in the evolution of cartographic analyses, synthesis, visualization, and their applications. This trend also leads to new challenges in cartography due to dealing with the gathering, storage, analysis, and visualization of spatial information and data. Cartography is one of the few visualization disciplines to has always used, and correctly analyzed a huge amount of data, and represented them on different levels of preciseness according to the needs of potential users. The bridge between Big Data (BD) and society cannot be achieved by only existing technologies and computers. The presence of professionals should be more active in the process of transforming BD into actionable information for users.
